A RANGE of diverse and innovative artwork by sixth form students is being displayed at an exhibition in Teesdale.

From horses heads to latex dresses, images of South Africa and a Buddhist tree of life, A-level art students from Barnard Castle School are exhibiting their eye-catching creations at The Witham, in Barnard Castle.

The exhibition is open from 10am to 4pm, from Wednesday until Saturday.

Kate Baptist, head of art at the school, said: "The students have worked extremely hard and what's especially encouraging is the diversity of the work.

“It's very individual and personal to each student as they have chosen to work with what interests them."

Among the exhibitors are Christopher Harrison, aged 18, who was inspired by images of South Africa he witnessed when part of a rugby tour, while his 18-year-old classmate Laura Spedding’s War Horse-inspired sculpture proved therapeutic as she has fell of a horse aged 14 and never got back in the saddle.
